At the forefront of our Stronger25 strategy is our purpose Enhancing Society Together; it drives us and helps to distinguish ourselves in the market. It’s also our daily compass:
“We care deeply about our people, our clients, and society at large. We take responsibility for having a positive impact on the world and we constantly challenge ourselves and others to develop sustainable solutions to local and global issues. We feel the urgency and are committed to accelerating the measurable benefits we deliver.
We act with integrity and transparency and hold ourselves to the highest standards of environmental and social governance. We are diverse and inclusive. We will not compromise the safety or well-being of our team or communities – no matter the circumstances.
We actively collaborate with clients, partners and stakeholders in projects and initiatives, together. Our actions, big and small, will drive the positive change the world needs, and will enhance society now and for the future.’’
As part of our strategy, we aim to deliver measurable impact in our projects and our own operations. We will focus on five Enhancing Society Together themes where we can have the most influence and which will be refined further in 2022. The themes are:

To better help clients with their complex challenges, we focus on smart combinations of the service mix, such as digital consultancy with design and engineering services. Also, building on the previous strategy, we are focusing even more on software and technology in the water market.
We aim to become employer of choice; developing, retaining and attracting diverse talents needed to achieve our ambitions. The Stronger25 focus will drive our investment calendar for the coming years and enable growth in revenue and profit.
